Soutien de Famille
Documentary, Experimental, Feature, cinematographical essay based on the artistic project
Soutien de Famille is a cinematographical essay based on the artistic project Hogshead 733 that includes a journey, a sea adventure, a story of heritage, friendship & whiskey. The process follows the restoration of a typical 1941 wooden fishing boat, her last 733 miles sailing journey, and the final transformation of the boat, soaked with sea and adventure into two whisky barrels. Every specially chosen stage gives a possibility to research the poetics of specific manual labor expertise: boat building, sailing, barrel making, and whisky production.
A journey from Trebeurden Brittany to the island Islay in Scotland was undertaken with 20 stops en route, from 23 August until 21 September 2015.
